A mother-of-two who was reportedly killed in Sydney’s west has been remembered as a ‘beautiful and kind-hearted’ woman.
Monday at 4.15 p.m., Dayna Isaac, 28, was discovered dead inside a flat on Colless Street in Penrith, west Sydney, by a lady who knew her and alerted police.
A 32-year-old man who is known to Ms. Isaac is now in police custody and aiding investigators.
Ms. Isaac’s best friend described her as the most beautiful, kind, and selfless person she has ever known.
‘She lit up the room and was the life of the party,’ the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, told the media.
‘She was an amazing doting mother to two beautiful girls who absolutely adored her and I am so so proud to call her not just my friend, but my sister.’
Ms. Isaac’s vehicle was discovered in a woodland 13 kilometers distant, in Castlereagh, all burned.
Specialists in forensic police are inspecting the residence and the vehicle’s remains.
‘An investigation is under way after the body of a woman was found in a home in Sydney’s west today,’ a NSW Police spokeswoman said.
‘About 4.15pm, a woman attended Penrith Police Station and notified officers that she had located the body of a woman – who was known to her – inside a unit on Colless St, Penrith.
‘Officers from Nepean Police Area Command attended the unit and found the body inside.
‘Initial inquiries suggest another person had been at the unit prior to the arrival of the woman who reported the matter.’
Anyone with information that might help police is urged to come forward and contact the Penrith Police station or Crime Stoppers.
